Client Printing of Chart's
Posted on 2011-05-05
I am using a charting package called Steema that will publich 5 charts to a single web page. I would like to add a print button to each chart, so that the user can print out the individual chart images. I have done this successfully using the built in command of chart.print. However, when the user prints, it sends the print job to the default printer on the server, and not on the client machine.
I have looked into various ways of sending the print job to files and what not, so that I can then use java to print to the client side. I have had no luck whatsoever. Does anyone have any ideas on sending print job from a chart.print (uses default printer) command?
I do not want to print the entire web page, as that is quite simple to do. I want to send the job that is currently printing on the default machine on the server, to the client printer.
